A song where the hero relates his desire to gamble, win and regain loves affection...?

Bring on The Deadly Winters!


Covered a number of times by many artists and in all manner of styles, The Deadly Winters rework of this traditional folk song manages to slip it seamlessly and comfortably into their distinctly styled musical canon.


The accompanying video was themed around an off-camera and unseen 'dodgy dealer', whom The 'Ters have to pay, beat, charm or bully into handing over their instruments. Filmed at The WEL Podcast Studio over the course of just one evening, the fixed camera, fast edit video is a slick and triumphant return to the musical jungle and shows that The Deadly Winters still have a fair number of cards up their sleeves.
